Members of the Firehouse German Band are living legends in the Polka industry. The Fire House German Band has been performing an upbeat, fast-paced repertoire of traditional “Oktoberfest” music for decades. Dedicated to the music of central Europe, Fire House German Band believes in the preservation of ethnic German and Austrian Polka music as a means of keeping the culture of the Alpine region alive. Credited with being one of the most beloved Polka bands in the mid-Atlantic regions, the Fire House German Band relies on a vast repertoire of Polka and Waltz selections, as well as traditional and original renditions of German, Polish and Slovenian standards. Today, the Fire House German Band’s signature-style Polka music continues to embrace a unique blend of ethnic and cultural influences. Combining an irresistible personality with a festive atmosphere, Fire House German Band has earned a growing regional audience and finds themselves in the mainstream of contemporary world music.
